About that meeting with Garry McCarthy...

Well so far we haven't heard much about why he wasn't able to make this weekend's GCA monthly meeting where he was the featured speaker. Worlee estimated a crowd of 100 at Carter Temple on Saturday. GCA in this quote below from the Chicago Independent Bulletin noted the attendance of over 500 to this event:
6th Ward residents are still wondering what happened last Saturday, August 20...City Police Chief Garry McCarthy was a disappointing no-show at a community meeting at Carter Temple CME Church, 7841 S. was held to discuss local crime and the top cop’s plans to combat the problem; and was sponsored by the Greater Chatham Alliance, who angrily pointed out: “Over 500 people were seated! The alderman is there! The new 6th District Commander is there! But the superintendent didn’t show up. This meeting was booked two months ago!” Not good...

Below is that page from the Chicago Independent Bulletin that contains this brief report. Third paragraph down under Bulletin birthdays
